Black Creek Pioneer Village, Toronto

4.2
Step into 19th-century Ontario at Black Creek Pioneer Village, featuring original buildings from early settlers to the province. Overlooking Black Creek River, the village is the creation of B. Napier Simpson, an architect devoted to the preservation of Ontario heritage. You'll see lots of structures that belonged to the Strong family, who used to own the property. The thoughtfully laid-out village includes a barn from 1809, a water-powered mill, a church, a blacksmith shop, and other distinctive structures from the time period. You'll also have the chance to see period furniture, meet the animals that live on site, and visit the restaurant and brewery. Open from late April to late December. Put Black Creek Pioneer Village into our Toronto road trip website and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Got married here in October! The food was fantastic, the on site event organizer was amazing like having a personalized wedding planner. The staff made getting married as stress free as possible. My guests raved about the food and how beautiful the venue was. The pictures turned out amazing! I'd recommend the veue to anyone. It's also a very cool place to just spend the day with the family!
  • Loved them. Beautiful buildings they have gathered from all over. Their feel is genuine and easy to navigate. Their actors/historians are amazing, I felt like I got something out of everyone I spoke with. My favorite was the tinsmith demonstrating hurricane lanterns and the flaming figgy pudding with a brief and engaging history of Christmas dinner. So much fun. I will definitely return in the spring and summer and the fall and spend a full day there.
  • This a place I never tire of. Went with family and with friends. People think it is just a place for school trips. Not so. If you like history, you will love the historical interpreters who are very keen to share their knowledge with you. Lovely on a sunny day! Closed in winter. Enjoy!
  • We brought our son today and he joined in the Jr. Detective missing jewels. He had a lot of fun, it was educational, and interesting. We really enjoyed ourselves, would recommend it for all ages and will likely be back in the near future!
  • If you love Christmas, the old-fashioned Christmas program is a must! You get to learn a lot about the ancient traditions through the staff’ skilled storytelling and acting. I was specially amazed by the “Trim the tree” presentation delivered by Ansley Newline. It was super entertaining as both kids and adults got to decorate a tree while we were listening to the origin of things that we do in our houses for Christmas. Being able to taste a Christmas pudding and to sing along our favourite Christmas carols played on the piano in the cosy parlour of Doctor’s House made the experience unique and special. And don’t miss out the Apple Cider; it is so fresh and delicious! The experience would have been 5 stars if they would not run out of roasted chestnuts at 2 pm. All in all it was a totally worthy experience.
